Lonely Planet review

Built for American archaeologists in the 1920s, the Marsam, formerly the Sheikh Ali Hotel, is the oldest on the west bank. The hotel is charming, with 30 simple rooms set around a lovely courtyard, with ceiling fans and traditional palm-reed beds. A delicious breakfast with home-baked bread is served in the garden. Atmospheric and quiet, and close to almost all the west bank sights, it is still popular with archaeologists, so you need to book ahead, particularly during the dig season (roughly from October to March).

Our independent authors have visited Marsam Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Nile Valley: Luxor.
